"Live For the Kill" by Amon Amarth (from "Twilight of the Thundergod")

B standard tuning

B E A D F# B

post any comments in the comments section. I will post any additional finds in the comments.
I'd like to point out that you can ALMOST play this song in E standard. But if you're 
along with
the CD you'l want to be in B standard to be able to go between songs easily. There is 
a rhythm part
that requires to be in B standard.
